When the illustrated edition of The Civil War was first published, The New York Times hailed it as "a treasure for the eye and mind". Now Geoffrey Ward's magisterial work of history is available in an audio edition that interweaves the author's narrative with the voices of the men and women who lived through the cataclysmic trial of our nationhood: not just Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, and Robert E. Lee but genteel Southern ladies and escaped slaves, cavalry officers and common foot soldiers who fought in Yankee blue and Rebel gray.
